Living in the economy that has surrounded us for the past couple of years has been difficult to say the least. With so many jobs lost, and people out of work, the stress that builds from that, can sometimes become overwhelming. Bills stop getting paid because there is no money for it, creditors start calling because they want it, and letters end up in the mail threatening legal action. If this is happening to you, bankruptcy may be the answer.
The weight of knowing that bills are not getting paid can sometimes be too much stress to some. Couples start fighting with each other, patience run thin, and people start falling under the pressure of trying to make ends meet.
Deciding to file should be a decision that is made with much thought. It will follow your credit for a few years, so its important to know the consequences of doing this. While accessing the current situation, consider how much debt is owed and what the income is compared to the outflow. Be honest about the ability to get it caught up and paid off. If the conclusion is that there is no extra money to take care of these other obligations, then a decision may have just been made.
If the income cannot cover the outflow, that is a strong sign that it is time to call an attorney. This law can protect you from creditors, stop their calls and letters, and forgive any debt you owe. There are certain things that are protected, but the best place to get good, accurate information is through an attorney.
When looking into what can be done to help wipe out your finances, make sure that you know what can be protected by this law. However, there are financial responsibilities for protecting your home or car and anything else that you choose to claim. So be clear on what the law expects before a decision is made.
It is natural to be embarrassed or ashamed when filing bankruptcy, but it is important to remember that this law was created for people who find themselves in this position. The economy has hurt a lot of people and no one planned on being hit this hard financially. Just make sure all the information is clear and accurate before the decision is made.
